The mother of an Alabama boy held hostage in an underground bunker for days said her son witnessed officers fatally shooting his kidnapper.
The 5-year-old Alabama boy who was taken at gunpoint from his school bus and held hostage since Jan. 29 in a bunker is home and doing well, family members said Tuesday.
The 5-year-old boy held hostage in an underground bunker in Alabama for nearly a week has been released, a law enforcement source said.
The 5-year-old Alabama boy snatched from his school bus at gunpoint and stashed with his abductor in a bunker is believed to be physically safe, police said Friday, on day three of the standoff.
More than three days after authorities said a gunman shot a school bus driver dead, grabbed a kindergartner and slipped into an underground bunker, the man showed no signs Friday of turning himself over to police.
The standoff between an Alabama gunman and law enforcement has entered its third day, and the fate of a 5-year-old boy, abducted from his school bus at gunpoint and subsequently hidden in an underground bunker, is still largely unknown.
"He says, `The Army came in and shot the bad man,'" Kirkland said.
"He doesn't like law enforcement or the government telling him what to do," he said. "He's just a loner."
